There has been no discussions with NHS London on future hospital and accident and emergency provision in London. In future, all service changes must be led by clinicians and patients, not be driven from the top down.

The Government have outlined new, strengthened criteria that it expects decisions on national health service service changes to meet. The local NHS are considering the impact of these criteria in their area and local communities are establishing how this work will be taken forward.
